people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have, i think that obama's 10% approval rating in israel would go even lower. >> greta: ambassador, thank you. always nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: okay. now to roger ailes, the man who created and launched fox news in 1996 and has been ever since. a new book gives readers an upclose look at the fox news president. and the author of "roger ailes off camera", nice to talk to you. >> nice to talk to you, too. tell me, when did you first begin talking to roger ailes about this book? >> i talked to roger, i guess in the summer of 2011. >> greta: all right. prior to 2011, i assume that he had some sort of thoughts about what you would be learning when you began the book. did anything surprise you diagnose your investigation and your reporting? >> oh, a lot of things surprised me. i'm a fox watcher and i have been for years, but i knew the network somewhat as a viewer, but i was very surprised to see what kind of a leader roger has been, you know, for this network, not just

obama and benjamin netanyahu are a tad on the frosty side. do you think part of this is to go out of the way to say we are good friends. we have the same interests in mind? >> i think it's to show that they have a lot of -- i think the way obama said it to israeli t.v. is they have a good professional relationship. both men have new second terms. the difference is that obama won a decisive 51%. and netanyahu had trouble putting together a governing coalition over the weekend. but in any event, the primary, you know, there are a few reasons for going now. some symbolic. some substance, but what is remarkable about the trip is that there is no agenda of accomplishment. there is no treaty that's being sigh signed. >> bill: right. >> there is no initiative to relaunch israeli peace talks. actually, the latest thing that is happening that was unfolding yesterday that might have some impact is the discussion over whether or not syria has and is using chemical weapons. >> bill: the white house has been careful to damp down any expectations of any significant ta come accomplishment will c

and makeup trip between prime minister netanyahu and president obama who have notoriously frosty relationship. there on the tarmac during the welcome ceremony, prime minister netanyahu, we lost track how many times he said thank you to the united states, thank you to president obama. even at one time called him barack. this comes after a few months ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better

itself by itself. obama said it several times. and now who repeated it. netanyahu also said, and for the first time, this has been the most generous american president who has guaranteed that israel will be supplied with early advanced weapons for ten years. i think the deal is that they have agreed that israel is going to make its own decision, by itself, go and do whatever it feels it has to do. the united states will on israel, but probably not help israel, and that is fine, but the problem is, none of them are thinking about what happens the day after that to the day after when they do retaliate in they feel that it has to do something, otherwise the regime will survive. then israel may start that fight, but it does not finish it without us. lou: and netanyahu went so far as to say in addition to what k t has laid out before us, this president went farther than any previous president and talking about israel's right to defend itself faugh. >> i don't think so at all. lou: let me get to the second half and see if i can do any better. the second, following a, if it is not a partner
